Harmanpreet Kaur’s First T20 International Hundred- India Women vs New Zealand Women T-20 Match Report 2018

India women’s skipper Harmanpreet Kaur notched up her maiden T-20 hundred, as India comfortably beat New Zealand by 34 runs in the first match of the World T20 World Cup on Friday.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, India were rocked early, as they lost both Taniya Bhatia and star batsman Smriti Mandhana to Lea Tahuhu.

Debutant Dayalan Hemalatha too fell cheaply, leaving India in a spot of bother 40/3 at one stage.

However, Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues then steadied the ship by adding 134 runs for the fourth wicket before the 18 year old Rodrigues was dismissed stumped by Katey Martin off Jess Watkin for a quickfire 59.

The 29 year old Kaur brought up her first T-20 hundred by smashing 103 runs off 51 balls with seven fours and 8 sixes. In the process she also became the first Indian to score a T-20 century in Women’s cricket. Her powerful hitting saw eight balls cross the fence- New Zealand by comparison could only manage one. No team in the previous T20 World Cup had managed to hit eight or more sixes either- another indicator of Kaur’s destructive capabilities.
